Test-Telegram: Bowers&Wilkins Zeppelin Mini

Only half a sound airship?
At the end of September I announced in the b-log , with the Zeppelin Mini, another product from the tradition manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins. By chance, I discovered it here in our cyberport STORE in Dresden. This gave the perfect opportunity to take a closer look at the system. Even his bigger brother-the original Zeppelin-shared the opinions, in this context, I would like to refer to the review of Joerg. After all, B & W or Cyberport would have a price of 399 euros for the good piece, so it is still a good 200 euros cheaper than the larger model, but plays without question in the class of high quality iPod sound system-let’s take a look…
even though The name has remained the same, with an airship the Zeppelin Mini has only a similarity from the design, at least at first sight. Looking more closely, one at least in the profile (viewed from above or below) again the silhouette of its namesake. In any case, the Mini is actually very compact from its outer dimensions (200 x 320 x 100 mm, 2.5 kg). The biggest innovation is the swingable iPod arm. In this way the CoverFlow operation is useful.However, one has to say, as graceful as in the promotional film, the actual panning is not.You have to use a little bit more swing, so that the arm takes the desired direction by itself.The iPod (in my case an iPod touch) sits relatively firmly in the base, even if it was rotated by 90 degrees-but also here, rather touch gently.

If the iPod is plugged into the Dock, it will automatically charge and charge. When playing the sound, Apple’s Player completely delivers the volume control to the Zeppelin Mini. The sound volume is then controlled via the remote control or directly on the device. By the way, B & W feels comfortable with buttons, only an on / off switch and the buttons for the volume are located on the device.

But how does the good sound now? If I could test it (full volume I wanted the customer in the store does not really expect) you have to stand that the sound is very rich, at least in relation to the size of the device. For the bedroom or study room, the performance should be satisfactory, only the 100 square meter loft requires more. I could not test the functionality as a dock on the computer and play music over the computer. Here again briefly my personal Pro and Contrapunkte.

Per:

Swing arm for CoverFlow (can also be used for transport)

Relatively good sound

Appealing, reduced form factor

Contra

For a sound system of this size relatively cost-intensive

Surface finish of the “mirror” (the area below the arm is a welcome “dirt trap”)

Conclusion
The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini is definitely one of the best sound systems for the iPod.Really awesome is the swing arm, CoverFlow can be operated also “stationary” – here has a manufacturer times thought. Whether this is worth the customer 399 euros, one should best judge within a personal hearing test, gladly also with us in the store shops.
